Fribidi is not thread-safe when the memory pool is enabled, see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79385

The memory pool has been disabled by default in git/master (http://cgit.freedesktop.org/fribidi/fribidi/commit/?id=54b4496e9c2368c53f1cff57347c1f395328a142) but there is still no release with that commit.

So meanwhile, I'd suggest --enable-malloc is added to the compilation flags. I personally expected a crash because of this.
This task depends upon
